This is a portrait of the late Danish poet Benny Andersen (1929-2018), in pencil.

Når man tændte lampen
stirrede øjet vildt til alle sider
når man slukkede lampen
blev øjet ved at se."

Benny Andersen: "Træning i ensomhed". Poem from "Chagall & skorpiondans", 1991.


When you turned on the lamp
the eye would stare frantically in all directions,
when you turned off the lamp
the eye kept on seeing.
